On Hannity’s Wednesday night show, Hannity read a letter Moore tweeted after the Fox News host demanded the former judge answer questions about the sexual abuse allegations leveled at him or drop out of the Senate race.
The Republican candidate denied all allegations that he sexually abused teenage girls when he was in his 30s. He maintained that he was a victim of a smear campaign organized by the “liberal media.”

Hannity seemed to back off his ultimatum that Moore drop out of the race.
“We demanded, rightly, answers from Judge Moore. He provided them to the specific questions we asked,” Hannity said, adding that he’s confident the people of Alabama can make the best choice for their state.

Women continue to come forward with accusations that Moore behaved inappropriately when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. Multiple Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have called for Moore to drop out of the race. The Republican National Committee also pulled its official fundraising from Moore’s campaign.
